The westbound I-496 bridge over Lansing Road will be closed for construction. This work is part of the Michigan Department of Transportation's (MDOT) ongoing $60 million I-496 Pave the Way Project to improve I-496 between I-96 and Lansing Road.
For more information about the project, go to www.Michigan.gov/496Lansing.
Westbound I-496 will be closed and detoured at M-99 (Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard). Also, the westbound I-496 and westbound St. Joseph Street ramps to Lansing Road will be closed and detoured. Additional nighttime closures may be necessary the week of Aug. 10. Please follow posted detours. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.
These improvements will provide increased safety and mobility in this area of the I-496, which is a significant local and national trade corridor.
